How to learn to dance twerk - Lifehacker
November 21, 2020LikbezSports and fitness
The size of the priests does not matter!
Author of Lifehacker, athlete, Candidate Master of Sports
Twerk is just a super sexy dance that will pump your plasticity, and at the same time load your abs and back muscles well. To begin with, we will learn a few basic movements, and then we will diversify the dance vocabulary and analyze the main mistakes. And at the end you will find a bonus in the form of a playlist with suitable music.
If you have problems with your lumbar spine, exercise with caution, or better yet, consult your doctor.
Learn how to do basic elements
Booty pop back
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width, toes slightly apart. Bend your knees and place your hands on your hips, turning them inward with your fingers, bend your lower back.
From this position, twist the pelvis down, and then, due to the deflection in the lower back, return it to its original position. Imagine that you are trying to reach the top of your head with your pelvis.
It is important to fix the upper back and work only on the lower back. You can not strain the gluteal muscles, otherwise the movement will turn out to be clamped.
If difficulties arise, try the lead-in exercise first. Place your hands on your hips so that your middle fingers rest on the protruding bones of the pelvis in front, and your thumbs - behind, closer to the sacrum. Bend your knees, move your pelvis down and then up, controlling the movement with your hands.
When you feel more confident, remove your hands and connect the movement with your knees. When the pelvis goes down, the knees bend, when it rises, they unbend. No need to lock the knees at the extreme point, they should remain slightly bent.
The pelvis moves back not only due to the straightening of the knees. The lower back must work.
Front booty pop
This movement is very similar to the previous one, only the emphasis is on pushing the pelvis forward rather than backward.
Stand with your feet wide and point your toes slightly out. You can put your hands on your hips to better feel the tilt. At the same time, bend your knees and sharply move your pelvis forward so that your butt goes down, and then bend your lower back and bring your pelvis back.
The emphasis is on the first phase of the movement, when the butt goes down. It is important at this moment not to pinch the buttocks, but to change the position of the pelvis due to the tension of the abdominal muscles.
Try other twerk moves
This element repeats the usual booty pop, only the movement of the pelvis in it is double: down-down, up-up.
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width. At the same time, turn one leg with your toe and knee out and transfer your weight to the opposite thigh. Then, with a small jump, switch sides.
First try to move slowly to get the point, then speed up. Jump relaxed.
Up down twerk
Arch your lower back and push your pelvis back. On the count of “one”, simultaneously round the lower back, bringing the pelvis forward, bend the knees and bring the shoulders forward. On the count of "two", bend your lower back and take your ass back in a semi-squat.
On the count of three, straighten your knees, round your lower back, and roll your shoulders forward. On the count of four, arch your back in the thoracic region, straightening your shoulders.
It turns out that at the lower point you bend in the lower back, and at the top - in the chest.
To feel the movement, start slowly. Place your feet shoulder-width apart, place your palms opposite the pelvis. In turn, touch the palms with one or the other bone of the pelvis. Accelerate gradually.
You can wobble while standing upright or bent over. Practice slowly bending over and back up as you move. Important: you should not pinch, otherwise stiffness will occur and no shaking will work.
Get into a twerk stance, lower your right thigh first, then your left thigh. Then, one by one, lift them up to their original position. At first, perform the elements slowly, with fixation at each point, and then gradually accelerate.
You can do this movement a little higher. In this case, start with a stance on straight legs in an incline. In the same way, lower the right and left hips in turn, bending the knees, and then raise the hips, straightening the legs.
Rise up on your toes and turn your heels in and out a little. Arch your lower back, try to relax your hips as much as possible.
This element can be performed in a straight position or bent over, moving both legs at once, or one at a time.
Stand with your feet slightly wider than your shoulders, point your toes forward, tilt your body and rest your hands on your hips. Rotate your pelvis, lowering and raising it as you go.
You can do this either in a bent over position on your hips or standing up.
Start in a twerk position with your toes pointing forward. Do one regular booty pop in place, then another with the toes and knees turned out to the sides, and then the next one with them returning to a straight position.
Continue turning your toes and knees out and back, tilting your pelvis as you move.
Place your feet shoulder-width apart, rise on your toes. Pull your pelvis back a little. Move quickly from foot to foot, trying to relax your buttocks.
Raise your right leg to the side, turn it with your toe and knee inward. From this position, simultaneously transfer the weight to the left thigh and turn the raised leg with the toe outward. Return your foot to the floor and repeat on the other side.
Try moving in other positions
Twerk can be danced not only while standing, but also while squatting, on all fours and even upside down on your hands, with your feet supported against the wall. Try different positions - this will help diversify your dance.
This is the same booty pop, only squatting. If you don't have enough stretch to move freely in a deep squat, work on your hip mobility first.
Offset to one side
Good stretch is also required for this option. Otherwise, you will not be able to relax and move freely.
On all fours
First practice the standing element to get used to it. Raise one leg on the toe, turning it with the knee outward and at the same time leaning on the opposite thigh. Then smoothly switch sides.
Now place your palms on the floor, arch your lower back, bend your knees and lift your heels off the floor. Perform a familiar movement in a new position.
This is enough to get you started. Try, combine the movements with each other and, if something fails, correct the mistakes.
Understand why you don't succeed
There are three main reasons why instead of twerking you get some bullshit. And the size of the priests has nothing to do with it.
1. You lack flexibility
To twerk well, you must have good mobility in the lumbar spine and hips. If flexibility is lacking, you can improve it by doing stretching exercises.

2.You work your upper back and shoulders
All basic movements require arching in the lower back. It is due to the lower spine that you feed the pelvis back and forth. But if during booty pop you bend in the thoracic spine and connect your shoulders, the movement will not look like a twerk.
3. You're too tight
This is probably the biggest beginner's mistake, which results in a tight, wooden pelvic movement instead of sexual shaking.
Don't push yourself too hard, relax your buttocks and thighs, shake off tension from your arms and shoulders. All elements should be carried out easily and without clamps. The best way to relax and feel the movement is to turn on the music.
Pick up the music
We found a cool audio compilation that makes you want to dance to and not stop. The description on YouTube has the names of all the tracks.
And another big selection, this time from Yandex. Music. There are some great tracks too, and some of them are pretty slow paced so you can learn the moves in a relaxed and casual way.
Write in the comments how your twerking is going. It turns out?

Inclusive balls in Russia: how Samara teaches the whole country to dance / Un Certain RegardListen to the publication

It would seem that salon ballroom dancing - slow waltz, lively quadrille and polka - are things of bygone days. However, what girl will refuse the opportunity to get into a fairy tale, where you can dance in a magnificent dress and beautiful music? But what if such balls are available to everyone - both for people with visual and hearing impairments, and for children in wheelchairs? Not a fairy tale - a reality. Samara has been holding inclusive balls for more than eight years, in which everyone participates.
This project is called "Inclusive Balls of Russia". Correspondent of the Un Certain Regard portal Vladimir Vaskevich talked with its organizers, choreographers and participants.
Balls for all
The idea of inclusive balls was born in Samara in 2014 — thanks to the partnership of Alexey Trantsev, director of the Inclusive Resource Center, Ekaterina Sizova, head of the Inclusive Art Studio, and ballroom dance director Sergei Boldyrev.
At that time, Aleksey was developing youth inclusive practices in the regions, the main purpose of which was not to help a person with a disability, but the joint activity of young people with and without disabilities, aimed at a specific bright result. The idea of ballroom dancing fit perfectly: beautifully, spectacularly, massively.
“The first inclusive ball was an experiment because there was little understanding of how to adapt salon ballroom dancing to the needs of people with a musculoskeletal disorder, participants in wheelchairs and with mental disabilities. It was these target groups that became the first at our balls. To be honest, the effect of the first rehearsal, in which about 30 people took part, was shocking, but Alexey, Ekaterina and Sergey did not repulse this desire. This is where their experience came into play: Sergey went through an international ballroom dancing school, by that time he was giving balls all over the country, and Alexey and Ekaterina knew perfectly well how to work with people with disabilities of various categories. We exhaled after the first test and continued to do more,” said Lidia Vanyukova, manager of the Inclusive Balls of Russia project.
After a while, the organizers saw the first results: everyone already knew how to move around the hall, learned to hear the music and rhythm, and most importantly, they got carried away with the process so much that they were ready to come to rehearsals several times a week. The organizers were convinced that the historical salon ballroom dances could be adapted.
“After the first ball, the participants and organizers were extremely enthusiastic, and when one of the participants asked when the next ball would be, there was no doubt: this inclusive practice will continue to develop,” said Lidia Vanyukova.
Description: color photograph. In a spacious hall with colorful curtains on the windows, couples are dancing. The boys are dressed in dark trouser suits with a white shirt. Girls and women are wearing evening and ball gowns in pink, blue, white, black and other colors. Two girls are dancing while sitting in a wheelchair. Everyone has medical fabric masks on their faces.
How to make the ball accessible
When the number of people wishing to attend the ball began to grow, the organizers faced new challenges: they had to find a room where about a hundred people could dance and waltz at the same time.
“Each inclusive ball is a beautiful fairy tale and a grandiose event that adorns our city. It is especially pleasant to watch how the girls' dreams come true, because everyone wants to put on a magnificent dress, spin around in the dance and feel like a queen at this ball. But for the fairy tale to become a reality, the organizers have to work hard before the ball. While the participants are rehearsing new dances, we are looking for and agreeing venues, if necessary, we bring our own equipment to make them available. Separately, a lot of work is being done with volunteers. For them, preparation for the ball begins long before the dance. After all, a volunteer should not only help in preparation, but also learn how to interact with any participant in the holiday, regardless of their limitations and capabilities,” said Viktor Timakov, an employee of the Inclusive Resource Center and the organizer of inclusive balls.
Every year two balls are held in Samara. During preparation, the organizers recruit volunteers and train them on the rules of inclusive interaction with people in wheelchairs, with blind and deaf participants, and with people with mental disabilities. At the holiday itself, volunteers not only help in organizing, but also join the dancers - they become full-fledged participants in the action.
Soon such a colorful and unusual event attracted partners. The organizers, for example, found those who helped with the rental of dresses for ladies and suits for gentlemen. The project was supported by the Presidential Grants Fund and a number of companies, including Sberbank.
“Initially, we set ourselves the task of making this holiday possible for everyone. At first we doubted whether we would succeed, then five or seven balls passed - and now you will not surprise anyone if even during the transition a couple is formed, where one of the participants does not see, and the second dances in a wheelchair. By the way, at balls it somehow got accustomed to call strollers carriages, and at some balls we choose the king and queen of the holiday. Absolutely all participants are waiting for this event,” Viktor Timakov said.

In the spacious foyer with high panoramic windows, against the backdrop of a stand flickering in the light of spotlights, the ceremony of rewarding the king and queen of the ball takes place. A woman and a man sit next to each other in wheelchairs and hold hands. The dark-haired woman is wearing a blue ball gown with a full skirt and white elongated gloves. The man is wearing a black trouser suit with a dark shirt. They have bouquets of flowers and certificates in their hands. On the face are medical fabric masks.
How to dance blindly
When the organizers received a request for participation from blind people, they immediately set to work.
“Through experience, we understood what was one of the main differences between our inclusive dances and ordinary ballrooms. We refused to change partners during the ball. Participants will recognize their ladies and gentlemen in advance - for this, my colleagues and I try to select the most suitable couples by height, combination of restrictions and their capabilities. But if they wish, we never interfere if they want to dance with someone else,” said Daniil Kitsaev, choreographer of the Inclusive Balls of Russia project.
This feature turned out to be relevant for blind participants. During dance rehearsals, couples need to work out the elements so that they can feel each other, even if one of the partners cannot see. During the dance, the partner without visual impairment, even if he is in a wheelchair, is the leader, if necessary, he gives voice commands that help the blind lady or gentleman orientate himself.
“Preparing a pair with a blind participant always takes more time and requires individual work. We try to put our most experienced dancers in such pairs. They and the choreographers show the blind person the movements, if necessary, they themselves get into the necessary dance poses and give the visually impaired person the opportunity to touch how the arms and legs should be positioned, what the inclination of the body should be, what the dynamics of the movement should be, and so on. At first, during the movement, the sighted partner gives voice comments so that the blind person understands the essence of what is happening, and, if necessary, counts the rhythm of the dance, since the rhythm of the music and the dancers may not coincide, but you need to move in the general flow, while observing the figures of the dance, ”shared experience Daniil Kitsaev.
The first acquaintance with ballroom dancing begins with a slow waltz, it is the easiest to master. Be sure to study polonaise and polka, and eventually tango, figured waltzes and more complex dances.
“In the process of training our blind dancers, we encountered the fact that it is difficult for the blind to convey the beauty of movement. For example, with Arina (participant with a visual impairment. - Note ed.), we worked for a long time on such an element as raising hands - when they soar like the wings of a bird. For a long time, some kind of robotic aircraft was obtained. Then there were difficulties with the elegance of the bow, but Arina's numerous training and perseverance did their job. Now she is a permanent participant in the last balls,” said Ilya Ivochkin, administrator of inclusive balls.
Ilya joined the inclusive project as a volunteer. There are people with disabilities in his family, and he was interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the power of inclusion and the nuances of interaction with participants with different disabilities. Dance has become an ideal tool for this. Over time, Ilya began to be trusted by the most difficult newcomers, and a year later he became the best volunteer for inclusive balls and was invited to the team of organizers.
“I was very lucky with my partner, because by that time Ilya already had experience of participating in several balls. At first, I felt extremely awkward, I thought that I would trample everyone's feet, but the wonderful atmosphere of dance, mutual understanding and trust on the rehearsal site did their job. I loosened up, I began to get different elements. I even began to offer my advice to choreographers on how best to teach the blind. I asked everyone to say during transitions in dances: 'I'm here', so that when I move alone, it would not be so difficult for me to understand where someone is standing, to come to my partner by voice. When we move in columns (ladies in their own, gentlemen in theirs), the girls already know that I don’t see, if necessary, they correct with light movements if I start to get out of the column, ”said Arina, a participant in the balls with visual impairment.
The organizers also note that the balls are not only dances, but also the etiquette of communication, the ability to give each other compliments, new acquaintances. Each of the participants during the holiday learns to be gallant and interact effectively with others.
“Sergey Boldyrev created this holiday so that everyone gets their chance to leave the room, the chance to be in a society of equals. He liked to repeat often: ''All this is done in order to make a fairy tale come true for one evening''. Sergey passed away last year, it was a cruel blow for all of us. But wonderful balls remain, in the prosperity of which Seryozha has invested his whole soul, they continue their development through our common efforts. We want this fairy tale to be repeated as often as possible and for more people from different regions of Russia,” said Lidia Vanyukova. In memory of Sergei Boldyrev, a dance named after him is performed at the balls.

Inclusive balls — in every city
The idea of inclusive balls is not unique, the organizers say. But it was in Samara that this initiative turned into a regular project and became more widespread. Since 2014, 14 balls have been held here, more than a thousand people from 50 regions of Russia took part in them.
“We try to follow the main principles of inclusion: we have about a third of the total number of participants with disabilities, and all dancers study together as equals in order to achieve the final result, and turn the ball into an event that will be remembered for a lifetime. We do not give concessions to anyone, but there are still no those who would not succeed at all. Everyone reaches their first ball. And then someone puts an end to it, and someone has been dancing with us for several years, ”said Viktor Timakov.
To exchange experience, the organizers began to invite participants from other regions to the balls. During the rehearsals, those who wished to pay for hotel accommodation and meals. Participants from different cities flocked to Samara, from Kaliningrad to Ussuriysk.
“For several years, participants from more than 50 regions of the Russian Federation came to us, everyone was impressed by the magic of the inclusive ball. Inspired, they left for their place, and then wrote to us when there would be another ball. So we realized that over time, Samara simply won’t be able to cope with the flow of applicants, and in order to scale the project, we need to start organizing inclusive balls in other regions,” said Lidia Vanyukova.
Employees of the Inclusive Resource Center trained future organizers at their sites, if necessary, and went to the place - to another region. Inclusive balls were held in Yaroslavl, Vologda and other regions. The idea of an inclusive ball turned into a social franchise that began to spread throughout Russia.
“Last year we got the idea to organize several balls all over the country at the same time.
